Extras is the spiritual successor to The Office, created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

Series 1: Ricky plays Andy Millman who, having given up his day job to be an actor, finds he just can't land the big parts. In fact, he rarely gets a speaking role so spends most of his days stuck in a green room with other extras, envying the A-list stars, with his fellow actor, Maggie Jacobs (Ashley Jensen).

Each episode Extras has a different setting and cameo appearances from guest artists including: Samuel L Jackson, Kate Winslet, Ben Stiller, Ross Kemp, Vinnie Jones and Les Dennis!

Series 2: The second series sees Andy (Gervais) experience the highs he has longed for with his newly written sitcom, 'When The Whistle Blows'. However, while the show achieves high ratings, Andy's creative integrity is under threat from the catchphrase-riddled, mainstream appeal of it all. The answer; artistic credibility and celebrity friends, which leaves poor Maggie out in the cold, now working as a background artist on Andy's breakthrough venture.

As before, a slew of high-profile celebrities pop up for some hilarious cameos, including Sir Ian McKellen, Robert De Niro and Orlando Bloom amongst others, all willing and able to humiliate themselves!

The Special: Andy has achieved a degree of fame but acclaim and respect are proving elusive. Maggie, meanwhile, is still a struggling extra and finds Andy's growing discontentment hard to fathom.

      Don't know what i will think of it 10 years from now but at the moment it's my fave TV show, each episode starts and you feel it may not deliver the trademark watching thru your hand painfully funny moments, but each episode does. I don't know how they do it. It Is Genius. ALL the guest stars are brilliant.
      Stephan Mercant is brilliant in series 2 as is Barry from Eastenders.

       A Worthy Follow Up to The Office

      Having given up his day job to be an actor Andy Millman has spent years working as an extra just hoping that one day he will be given his big break. Largely thanks to his useless agent it unfortunately seems that he will forever be forced to watch A-list stars from a distance.

      Writing a follow up as clever and funny as 'The Office' was always going to be a tough task and while it is not quite as good as Ricky Gervais' first TV outing it comes pretty close. Gervais again takes centre stage but this time around it is really the supporting cast and numerous guest stars, including the likes of Kate Winslet and Ben Stiller, that make the show such a success. Ashley Jensen is adorably funny as Millman's best friend Maggie and co-writer Stephen Merchant is never less than hysterical as his agent.

      Anyone that enjoyed 'The Office' will certainly appreciate Extras and this boxset offers great value for money.

      With the exception of 'Lead Balloon', Extras is without doubt the best comedy show for some time.After 'The Office' ended in 2002 Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant must have thought that they couldn't top it,but they have with this!Gervais stars as down on his luck extra Andy Millman,Ashley Jensen is a little annoying as his only friend Maggie and Stephen Merchant steals it as Millman's useless agent Darren Lamb.Look out for cameos from Samuel L Jackson,Kate Winslet,Clive Owen and Robert De Niro!!!!!

       Brilliant
